Welcome to Belfast Zoological Gardens
Baako was the first gorilla to be born at our zoo in 16 years and we're delighted to celebrate his second birthday. Join the fun on Monday 3 August.
If you're mad about monkeys, barmy about bears or crazy for California sea lions, then remember to visit your favourite animal at feeding time.

In 2015, Belfast Zoo became home to a striped hyaena! Hyaenas are not members of the dog or cat families. Instead they have a family all of their own, Hyaenidae.
